The beginning of January always heralds a clutch of calendars from every design consultant and his/ her dog, but hey, why follow the crowd? Now that spring is here, we’ve just received a calendar from the Edinburgh consultancy Almond Design. Creative director Dorothy Steedman “threw away the rule book” for the calendar, deciding on a “complete departure from any treatment that has gone before”.
Not only do days of the month appear in varying styles, dribbling across the page or floating in water droplets, but the first month of 1995 is March. So Almond’s year ends in February 1996.
